Are you submissive to your boss, even when he or she is unreasonable?

Peter instructed, "Servants, be submissive to your master with all respect, not only to those good and gentle, but also to those who are unreasonable" (1 Peter 2:18 NASB).

Some supervisors, unfortunately, are just unreasonable. In our human weakness, we will be tempted to lash out, strike back and gossip about a lousy supervisor. However, God has clearly instructed us to demonstrate respect and obedience in return. Your kind demeanor, no matter how badly you are treated, will often soften the hardest manager and improve the work environment for everyone.

In the Word

Peter instructed, "Servants, be submissive to your master with all respect, not only to those good and gentle, but also to those who are unreasonable" (1 Peter 2:18 NASB).
